Mallory Qualls’ Fundraiser

This benefit hit home for me. A young girl who is battling lyme was having a fundraiser, I had very short notice to make the items and get them there but I felt compelled to help in any way that I was able. I sat up for hours the night before the day I had to express mail the package out and finished up these two scarves. One was a white diamond shaped scarf that my mom made . I decided to edge it with fun furry yarn to breathe some life into it. With blue silvery yarn I made a thicker variation of the chenille scarves I have listed for sale. Even though it was under pressure I thoroughly enjoyed being able to create things to help other people ūüôā

Please contact me if you are interested in having some of my pieces at your auction for a benefit or fundraiser you are having!! craftingforlyme@me.com

[I will add images from the fundraiser when I get them, I can’t wait to see them!! :)]

Angela Castle’s Fundraiser

I love being able to participate in fundraisers! For this one, I made a slightly thicker and longer version of the royal purple scarf for sale on this blog.¬†Mom made a beautiful grey and black set for the benefit! A grey cloche type hat with a black flower and a grey tunisian crocheted scarf with a black flower. I had to send them as a set as I couldn’t bear to break apart a gorgeous set like that.I am hoping they helped Angela raise money!!

If you are having a fundraiser please let me know and I can see if we can whip something up for you as well!!!

(will add pictures from the benefit when I get them, I can’t wait to see them!!! :))

Lisa Ray Benefit/Fundraiser

I saw another fundraiser for another Lyme patient and her son on 9/19/2010. This one was too far away for me to attend but I decided to create some crocheted items for her auction.
I enlisted the help of my mother (crochet extraordinaire and a part of Crafting for Lyme) and we got 2 scarves, 1 hat and 2 bracelets done in 12 days. We sent them off with handmade tags to Lisa to help raise money for her treatment.

(they put the wrong location but these are some of the items we sent)

Eric’s Benefit/Fundraiser

I ended up befriending Eric Rutulante who writes for http://www.lymebites.com and is part of http://www.Lymenaide.com as well, on facebook. I saw that there was a fundraiser for Eric on 8/13/2010 and people were donating items to auction off and raise money for his treatment.

I had just started crocheting and embarked on creating a bouquet of flowers in a vase for the auction. It was a very ambitious project for my first real completed piece. I didn’t know exactly how it was going to work but I just started and learned as I went along. I learned to make leaves, crochet around wire to form the stems and created a bunch of various flower types. I had to figure out how to connect them and perfect my stitching style. I spent many hours working on it. It came out beautiful and was a hit. It felt incredible to finally be able to create something from nothing, in that I mean I took some skeins of yarn and created a beautiful vase filled with creative flowers.

The stones in the vase were collected from the Delaware River. Some of them got painted with a clear glaze to give them a shiny wet look. I wanted to give this project as many personal touches as I could.
